We ventured into the Border Ranges National Park after picking up a pamphlet at the Information Centre. What an amazing area. We came in from Barkers Vale and our first stop was Falcorostrum Loop. We just loved the stands of Antarctic Beech. Blackburn Lookout was brilliant looking towards Mt Warning but the Pinnacle Walk just blew us away. The Mt... More

It is a great area to walk or even to drive on a rainy day. From the border loop to the Pinnacle lookout, the views on the old volcano in the Tweed Hinterland is amazing

We went to the Pinnacle lookout and sat admiring the view. We heard voices coming from below and learned there is an old track which actually goes to the end of the Pinnacle itself. Its a tough track and there are a couple of sheer drops that would result in certain death so not for the faint-hearted. It takes about... More

Very unlike the Eucalypt forests we are used to in Australia, Border Ranges has dense stands of various types of lush rainforest. There are short and long walks and fantastic lookouts. Our personal favourite was the Antarctic Beach forest at Bar Mountain. Also the walk from Sheepstation Creek camping area.

There is a lot to see at a lot of interesting locations. Good camping areas, and some good bushwalks, both short and longer. Some interesting history, and a relaxing place, with some great lookouts. If is a must visit if in the area.

This was our latest weekend adventure and I already can't wait to go back! Lots of clean, spacious picnic areas, easy to get to lookouts, and trails for those with wandering feet. I highly recommend this National Park.

We only had a day so we decided to do the 56km Border Range circuit. There was around 40-50km of unsealed road which our low slung Hyundai veloster managed reasonably well, although the road had been recently graded and there had only been light rain since. The rainforest was green, moist and full of amazing lichen and moss. the lookouts... More

I am not that keen on hiking or walks over 30 mins - 2hrs max return unless I am promised an awesome something. I am pretty fit and can do most walks in less than the time suggested more because I get bored looking at the same vegetation and usually run or move pretty quick to get it over an... More

While it takes a bit of getting to, once there the views and park environment are well worth the trip. The gravel road is very well maintained, but is narrow in places. There are spectacular views from the various lookouts however one issue we found was a distinct lack of car parking. The day we visited it wasn't busy by... More

Great for walking through beautiful pristine rainforest and the occasional waterfall. The lookout at Blackbutt is well worth a stop and photo opportunity. If you are going to do any walks would recommend to wear long pants or gaitors as the leeches can be annoying. As there are very few maps I would also recommend taking a photo on your... More
